Natural Scar Remover
Q: Is there such thing as natural scar remover?
A: It comes as no surprise that more and more people are opting for natural scar removal remedies, rather than using harsh chemicals and expensive lasers. For those that prefer a treatment from mother nature instead of the doctors office, fortunately you’re in luck! There are a few natural ingredients which are known to be very helpful in combating scars.
Let’s take a look at a few of the most popular natural scar removers:
Vitamin E Oil
There is some disagreement out there as to whether or not vitamin E is a good way to treat scars. If it is a brand new scar, vitamin E might make your scarring worse. However if it’s a scar you’ve had a while, then you may want to consider it.
I personally know someone that swears by this natural scar remover. He began using it a couple months after his open heart surgery; applying it to the scar one or two times a day. After a few months, the scar had practically vanished. While I’ve personally not tried this natural scar remover yet, it sounds like there are many who have great success with it.
Allium Cepa (Onion) Bulb Extract
This one is probably considered to be the most effective natural scar remedy used today. In fact, it is so effective that it is the primary ingredient in Mederma brand – the most popular scar remover product in America. This ingredient has been researched thoroughly for quite some time now and being that there is a large body of clinical research out there which supports its effectiveness, it’s definitely a scar removal product that’s worth checking out.
Reportedly, this active ingredient is said to improve collagen organization and has antiproliferative effects on skin cells. The one drawback about Mederma scar treatment and other remedies which us onion bulb extract is that it does have a mild onion scent (since that is what it’s made out of) but it is so mild I don’t think it would bother many people.
Tea Tree Oil
Similar to vitamin E, this is one of those natural scar removal remedies which has mixed reviews. I have read a number of reviews and although I have not tried this one yet personally, it does sound like tea tree oil cream and products have potential. The typical course of treatment involves rubbing the oil on the scar a few times per day until it has vanished. It sounds like it is most effective on newer scars.
